Newcomers to Omaha in 1947

Date: Sunday, January 25, 1948  

Paper: Omaha World Herald (Omaha, NE) obtained on 

I've been searching on GenealogyBank.com for references to Roy Sigman and came across this interesting item from an Omaha newspaper. 

Roy Sigman's not the most unusual name, but this "Newcomers to Omaha" item did confirm that Roy moved from Blair, Nebraska, to Omaha in late 1947 or early 1948.  One of the newcomers was from a slightly greater distance: Long Island, New York.

It never ceases to amaze me what is in old newspapers. And it's always good to make connections between locations whenever possible.
